Tangle Time: Unleash your creativity with markers!

If you've spent any time browsing our website, you've likely run across Nancy Smith's Tangle Time collection. With just three fabrics, it's one of our smallest lines, but arguably one with the widest range of creative opportunities. Tangle Time is a panel of fun doodles just begging to be colored in. Each panel measures at approximately 36" x 40" and includes 20 unique designs that are around 8-1/2" square. Panels come in black, metallic silver and metallic gold. 

A variety of markers work well on the Tangle Time prints:

The question becomes, then, what CAN'T you do with Tangle Time? 

Here's some inspiration from Nancy to get you started:

Coloring with a cool color palette:

A panel colored in blues, greens and purples:

Fussy cut a square and use it for a throw pillow...either colored or in or not!

Make placemats and host a coloring lunch!

One color per placemat...

Surround blocks with bold, bright color!

Look how the designs pop with colored frames:

More lush color for sashing and borders:

Love the pieced sashing!

Keep it monochromatic in black and white:

What would you do? Ask for Tangle Time at your local quilt shop and get coloring!

  2. This looks so amazingly fun and beautiful the way in which you presented it. I keep thinking and imagining hand embroidered Crewel Stitches filling each motif chosen and ending up with a unique and gorgeous quilt!
    Thank you for sharing this with us! I can not wait to get some!

  3. What to make first?!? How cool is this fabric!
